203. Resolution
Place the normal probe at a focal point in V1, block for a 100mm
range.
The echo will comes at 85, 91, 100 mm separately

204. Penetration
Place the normal on perspex, the echo will come out 50mm based upon
velocity station perspex & steel [2730:5920] 23.5 mm Perspex is equal
to 50mm of steel.
205. Sensitivity
Place the probe towards 1.6mm hole the echo will come at 15 (01)35.
206. Sweep linearity

27

Place the probe on thickness 25, 50, 75, 100 mm. The echo will
produce in a descending order.
207. Screen high linearity
Place the probe towards t and t to 80% and 40% reduce 2db up to
6db. The value in table is 25.6 tolerances 5% of the value.
208. Amptitude Control linearity
Place the probe towards the artificial defect to 80% reduce to 6db 12db measure the value make to 40% of height increase +6db measure
the value make 20% increase +12db measure the value, as per
tolerance 20% of the value.
209. DAC
Distance Amplitude Correction Curve
A scan 1605 MHz
210. Types of Probe.
Normal probe, Angular probe, triangular probe (45, 60, 70).
211. Normal probe, Triangular probe.
Normally used for thickness check-up only.
212. Angular Probe
Used to find the weld defect.
213. Size of the probe.
8 x 9, 20 x 22
214. Formula
beam path = t /cos
Full beam path = 2t/cos
1 beam path = 3t/cos
2 beam path = 4t/cos
215. Skip distance
skip distance = t x tan
Full skip distance = 2t x tan
1 skip distance =3t x tan
2 skip distance = 4t x tan
215. Depth
depth = beam path x cos
Full depth = 2t-beam path x cos
28

1 depth = beam path x cos -2t


2 depth = 3t-beam path x cos

216. Location

218. Thumb rule


90- Thickness.
For example 24mm thickness
90-24=66mm
Nearest probe is 70, so we have to select 70 probe

219. Below 38mm we use 4mHz probe, above 38mm we use 2mHz probe.

220. V2 Block
Notes:
Based upon V2 block, echo pattern facing the angle probe towards
25mm radius the 1st echo will come at 25mm make the echo to 2.5
divisions. The next echo will come in an increment of 75mm to
100mm automatically at 10th division. A 100mm range facing the
probe towards 50mm radius the 1st echo will come at 50mm make this
echo at 4th division, the next echo will increment at 75 to 125mm at the
10th division.

221. V1 Block
Notes:
29

Based upon V1 block echo pattern face that angle probe towards
100mm radius at focal point 1st echo will come at 100mm make this
echo at 4th division. The 2nd echo travel 125 mm of increment come at
225mm on the 9th division automatically each division 25mm 50
division 250mm.

23mm thickness
Probe selection 90-t
90-23=67
Frequency: below 38mm 4mHz
Above 38mm 2mHz
Probe size 8 x 9, 20 x 22
Couplant: water, grease, oil

Set the Range (70)

beam path = t/cos = 23/0.5 = 46 mm


Full beam path = 2t/cos = 46/0.5 = 92mm
